The Kidz Positive Foundation is an extension of the Kidz Positive Beadwork Project

Our goals: Early childhood development, meeting educational needs and helping adults to become economically active.

Parents of children who are HIV positive, frequently face overwhelming challenges. They are often single parents, suffering poverty, physical ill-health social stigma and social isolation. All these challenges, together with the fact that they themselves have often not had a decent education, make it very unlikely that they would appreciate the vitally important principles of early childhood development (ECD). We have become acutely aware of the fact that many babies and children coming into the project with their mothers were not reaching age-appropriate developmental milestones.
